Tonya Harding and Sasha Farber perform next, dancing the rumba to “See You Again” by Tyler Ward. Harding chose her late father as her MVP.

Carrie Ann Inaba says she “Danced with her heart open,” while guest judge David Ross calls it inspiring. Len Goodman likes that it was multi-level but adds that Harding could have moved her hips a bit more. Bruno Tonioli praises her lines. They score a 33.

Dancing with the Stars Social Media Reactions

Harding is a former Olympic figure skater. According to ABC, “Harding won her first skating competition at the age of five. In 1991, at Senior Nationals, Tonya became the first American woman to attempt and land the extremely difficult Triple Axel. Her life story was recently depicted in the award-winning film ‘I, Tonya,’” which tells the story of the Harding-Nancy Kerrigan scandal.

“Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” is hosted by Tom Bergeron and sports broadcaster Erin Andrews. The judging panel is composed of ballroom experts Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine who gets to stay and who is sent home as couples vie for the coveted Mirrorball trophy during the special, four-week season.

The remaining athletes include Olympic figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu, luger Chris Mazdzer, softball pitcher Jennie Finch, NFL star Josh Norman and former figure skater Tonya Harding.

The finale of this season’s all-athlete edition of “Dancing with the Stars” airs next Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
